What’s the secret to Jun Ji Hyun’s youthful beauty?

Jun Ji Hyun. Gianna Jun. Cheon Song Yi. Whatever name you call her by (the latter is her character from her career-resurging role in 2013’s You Who Came from the Stars), we believe fans can all probably agree on two things: she is a bona fide Hallyu goddess (that aura), and it feels like way too long since her last project, 2016’s Legend of the Blue Sea.

Of course, her absence from screens both big and small is completely understandable: in January this year, the 36-year-old gave birth to her second child, another boy, with her banker husband Choi Joon Hyuk.

But we have good news. Last night (Oct 5), Ji Hyun was in town to fulfil brand ambassador duties for K-beauty label Hera, which has opened its first flagship boutique in Singapore at ION Orchard. The actress first attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony in front of the store itself, and then held a brief media conference at ION Sky, where she shared about her favourite cosmetic products and her secret to her youthful glow (more on that later).

Then, about an hour later, she made another appearance after a fashion show and live makeup demonstration, where she answered a few more questions. One of the queries from the host was, “What can fans expect from you next year?”

Ji Hyun happily revealed that there are most certainly plans for new productions and shows. “I cannot share too much at this point, but I will definitely be returning very soon to meet all of you through a new show, so please look out for that,” she smiled.

We already can’t wait.

The secret to her youthful beauty is…

“Find the right product that suits your skin type and at the same time, stay active. At the end of a long day, I pay a lot of attention to cleansing and make sure I get that much-needed rest and lead a healthy lifestyle.

When all these things come together, they can really bring that youthful, healthy glow to your skin, and that glow will be delivered not just through your superficial looks, but will also show in your behaviour, action and words.”

“The cream, essence, and of course, their latest product, the UV Mist Cushion. I place a lot of emphasis on enhancing the natural glow of my skin, and when I used the UV Mist Cushion for the first time, I realised that it really gives you that nice, almost translucent and dewy glow that you can see from multiple angles.”

“No. 343, called Naughty Berry, which I wore in my latest commercial for Hera. I really like it because it gives that much-needed accent to your look, yet is still good for daily wear. It’s not too heavy or outrageous, but has a very gorgeous and elegant colour.”

To her, a “Seoulista”* is…

“A passionate, confident and active women who knows how to strike that fine balance between work and life. In the modern era, life can get too busy and tiring, but as long as you can achieve that balance, then you can be a ‘Seoulista’ too.”

*Hera’s official website describes a “Seoulista” as “a Korean woman who captivates the world with her confidence, dignity, boundless passion and beauty”, but it looks like the term can stretch to us non-Seoulites as well!
